Tough one, I would say smell or taste.
taste. Smells are nicer.
Taste, cause its really the only one that would come with a positive side. Without a sense of taste it would be much easier to eat healthy (since most healthy foods are god awful).
Taste... then I can give up my inability to eat veggies and be able to eat healthy.
I'd keep smell just so I'd be able to "Smell her perfume" and such. And so I don't do something like put some random aftershave on and realize it doesn't stink
Sight and Touch and Hearing are kinda obvious.
smell, I'm more annoyed by smells than pleased.
I was going to say hearing, because I despise loud trucks, lawnmowers, sh*tty little sisters playing guitar, mothers singing crappy Anglican hymns, and so forth... but then I love good music far too much. So I'll say smell, because my sinuses are so clogged up that I already can't smell much, and it's no bother at all.
At first I thought smell was the obvious one but then I did some thinking.
If I get rid of smell I will never be able to smell a girls perfume or know if zi have B.O. Never be able to tell when a girls hair smells good or if my farts smell.
Now if I lost taste, I wouldn't really care what I eat. Which would make it a lot easier to eat healthy in stay in better shape.
So I'm gunna have to go with tast.
I'd leave out taste. I eat for effect and not for taste anyway, and without taste I wouldn't be tempted by soda and chocolate anyway, so it would be brilliant.
I'd be a lot more debilitated without a sense of smell, though. Smell alerts you to important hazards nearby, like smoke, gunpowder, cyanide and sulphurous compounds.
I was going to say smell because mine is already pretty bad - in fact, most "pleasant smells" (wait, what) just cause me to cough. This applies to most flowers and basically everything with a strong scent. Sooo... I was thinking I would not need it.
But in fact, it's necessary for checking if the milk has gone bad, or if some food is still edible. It's necessary for survival. Same goes for taste, sight and hearing. So touch is the least essential.
Hearing, because I am already half deaf, might as well make it completely deaf. If I take away any of the others, I would be without whichever one it is, plus being half deaf.
i would go without smell
Smell. Taste is up there too, but ultimately taste is what keeps you from eating something that could harm you. If something smells bad, chances are it will taste bad as well. But something could also smell bad, but really not be bad so taste is the indicator before you swallow your food.
If I were to not have one of these from birth, I would go with taste... For what you have never know will never cause you pleasure or pain. (But eating things and only feeling the texture I think would be a little strange)
However, If I were to lose one today, I would lose sight. Most people would think this is crazy, because we rely on it so much, but it would help you heighten your other abilities and help you from judging people by appearance. (Though scent of people would more then likely be what you judge people of)
well I can't give up my sight, or my hearing... hell no I'm not giving up my tact... so its between taste and smell. hmm, I love taste because of food, but I love smell because it helps me love my girl more... I guess taste, cause then I could eat healthy and it wouldn't taste like anything, I could get rich for eating nasty things on TV lol
Well, let's see. Sight and hearing are critical to communication and are the most developed senses of humans. Feel... Nope I would not want to have CIPA. Taste monitors the income of nutrients in the body making sure it has what it needs. And it also makes sure you don't swallow any poison. So I guess my choice is the sense of smell. I already live without it anyways.
Many people say "It would be great to lose my taste, I can eat healthier and wouldn't be tempted by junk food" But imagine how boring it would be to eat without taste.. Without taste we would pretty much forget to eat. Only when we become super hungry we realize we need to eat. Imagine eating an broccoli and not being able to taste it.. it would smell awful and all we can feel is a mushy feeling in our mouth without any taste.. gross.
This question has made me realize how lucky we are to have all five senses :) I would be really sad if I had to give away any of them.
Taste. maybe I would lose weight faster if I didn't have cravings for yummy foods. I could eat anything healthy with a bitter taste without complaining. I would still be able to smell the wonderful things around me, but disgust or obsession through taste wouldn't be an issue. And I'd be much less picky about foods. Definitely taste. Although I'd want to be born that way. I think it would be hard to have taste taken away after having tasted so many good things. At least if you're born that way, you don't know anything else.
taste, most definitely...I'd probably have none of the weight issues I have right now if I couldn't taste anything.
It's a toss up between smell & taste. Sight & hearing are too important to lose, & I defiantly wouldn't want to lose touch. I wouldn't mind losing taste so I could eat healthy foods, but I think I'd pick smell if I really had to choose. Most of the time I can't smell anything unless it's really strong because of my sinuses. But it is nice to smell something that has a great scent, like cologne.
umm... without question, SMELL
smell is something I can do without out.
